In cooperation and partnership with Independent Distributors of Electronics Association (IDEA), EPTAC offers training in Counterfeit Identification and Mitigation as well as an introduction to IDEA-STD-1010, including training in methods for the visual detection of counterfeit and substandard characteristics, through a one-day, hands-on workshop. The training environment provides a unique opportunity to examine real components with live, on-site microscopic magnification to obtain experience in the visual inspection techniques of IDEA-STD-1010 and learn how to detect counterfeit components firsthand.
For those seeking to prepare for the IDEA-ICE-3000 Professional Inspector Certification Exam, EPTAC offers IDEA-STD-1010 Essentials, an in-depth program that educates you on how to navigate and apply the most widely used standard on counterfeit components in the electronics industry.
IDEA-STD-1010 Essentials is designed to develop an in-depth knowledge of the IDEA-STD-1010 "Acceptability of Electronic Components Distributed in the Open Market" standard and a thorough understanding of its contents, application and use in the component inspection counterfeit detection process.
